Stars posed up a storm on the amfAR Cannes gala red carpet on Thursday, but Leonardo DiCaprio, as per usual, chose to keep his entrance on the down low.
According to Variety, the “Titanic” actor made an appearance at the star-studded bash alongside his date for the evening; his mom, Irmelin Indenbirken.
DiCaprio — who came to Cannes for Martin Scorsese’s “Killers of the Flower Moon” premiere — was said to have taken the back entrance into the bash to avoid attention.

Ramin Setoodeh Co-Editor-in-Chief There was Gatsby. At 11:30 p.m. at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, the amfAR Cannes gala quietly welcomed one of the biggest movie stars in the world to a tent off the Mediterranean Sea. Leonardo DiCaprio had been missing for several years at the glitzy charity auction that marks the end of partying at the Cannes Film Festival, but this year, he not only stopped by, he brought a date — his mom, Irmelin Indenbirken. At Table 15, near the stage where celebrities tried to wrangle nepo babies and oligarchs for hundreds of thousands of dollars for lavish pieces of arts, vacations and even a car, DiCaprio tried to go incognito (as if that was possible). He wore a baseball cap to the black-tie dinner and kept his head down. (Though baseball caps are part of DiCaprio’s typical uniform, this festival, he’s been all over Cannes, sans hat, for the premiere of his film, “Killers of the Flower Moon.”)
amFAR, the organization founded by the late Dr. Mathilda Krim and Dame Elizabeth Tayler (the International founder), dedicated to funding AIDS research since 1985, held its annual Cannes Gala at the Hotel du Cap tonight as it has always done for the past 29 years tied to the end dates of the Cannes Film Festival each May.
So many stars attended the amfAR Cannes Gala 2023 at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc on Thursday (may 25) in Cap d-Antibes, France.
Matt Donnelly Senior Film Writer The upper deck at France’s Hotel Du-Cap-Eden-Roc offers a stunning coastal view of nearby city Cannes, the kind that Jay Gatsby would covet to peep Daisy Buchanan. On Tuesday, at one of the hottest parties at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, that view belonged to Graydon Carter. Standing alone with a female companion, the creator of the digital publication Air Mail and iconic former editor of Vanity Fair observed not a long-lost love but a cliffside full of movie stars, auteur directors and Hollywood power players. Carter’s Air Mail co-hosted an evening celebrating the 100-year anniversary of Warner Bros. Pictures, the latter represented by Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav and his top content lieutenants. Leonardo DiCaprio, Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost, Robert De Niro, Martin Scorsese, Lily-Rose Depp, Sam Levinson, Jason Statham and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Rebel Wilson and more turned up to toast cinema and each other.

for minutes of applause. So entrenched is this French farce that trade publications routinely time the euphoria and judge the response to the new films based on the length of the cheering at the Grand Théâtre Lumière. Cannes’ longest-ever roar? Guillermo del Toro’s “Pan’s Labyrinth,” which premiered there in 2006, at 22 minutes. This year’s fest is in full swing, and so is the ceaseless hand-slapping.Here are Cannes’ standing ovations so far, from triumphant to tepid.The most ecstatic response to a film so far at this year’s festival, which runs until May 27, was for Martin Scorsese’s latest drama. The historical movie from Apple and Paramount brings together two popular Scorsese stalwarts, Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro, plus last year’s Best Actor Oscar winner Brendan Fraser and Jesse Plemons.
Leonardo DiCaprio’s “one that got away” is telling all!
Leonardo DiCaprio’s accent has caused some confusion following the first trailer for Killers Of The Flower Moon.Based on the book by David Grann, Martin Scorsese’s western crime drama follows the FBI investigation into a series of Oklahoma murders in the Osage Nation during the 1920s, after oil is discovered on their land.After the first trailer debuted on Thursday (May 18), some viewers raised eyebrows at the authenticity of DiCaprio’s southern accent.One viewer wrote: “Did Leo just invent a new accent, has anybody ever sounded like that?”“Love him but why does scorsese feel the need to inflict leo dicaprio doing a terrible accent on us every decade or so,” another added.You can check out more reactions below.Did Leo just invent a new accent, has anybody ever sounded like that? https://t.co/DaAngciJZQ— paul (@YNMIDK) May 18, 2023Someday, Leonardo DiCaprio will find an accent he can deliver.

Jeremy Strong's commitment to playing Kendall Roy on Succession has led to repeated debates about the merit behind the practice and the toll it can take on an actor's health. Brian Cox has been a frequent critic of the method, claiming it led to Daniel Day-Lewis burning out but many of the very best throughout Hollywood's history have used the technique. The modern method approach to acting is generally credited with being popularised by Marlon Brando who requested to have a bucket of ice water thrown over him during his first Broadway play to make him look like he had actually been thrown in an icy lake.
Robert De Niro called Donald Trump “stupid” at the Cannes Film Festival while discussing his character in Killers Of The Flower Moon.The actor, who plays twisted cattleman William Hale in Martin Scorsese’s western crime drama, compared his character to the former US president during a press conference at the festival.“I don’t understand a lot about my character,” De Niro said (via Variety). “Part of him is sincere. The other part, where he’s betraying [the Osage people], there’s a feeling of entitlement.
Elizabeth Wagmeister Senior Correspondent Leonardo DiCaprio was seen taking a selfie with a lady in red as he sat sandwiched in between Cannes chief Thierry Frémaux and festival president Iris Knobloch, deep in conversation at Kering’s Women in Motion Dinner. As he left, he walked to the back balcony of the party where Salma Hayek was sitting on a step smoking a cigarette. He bent over and hugged Hayek as he headed home just before 1:00 a.m. If DiCaprio had stayed a bit later, he might have been dancing on a table with Michelle Yeoh and Brie Larson. Yeoh — the night’s honoree as the recipient of Kering’s Women In Motion Award for 2023 — left shortly before 2 o’clock in the morning, glistening with sweat after dancing the night away with Larson, who is a member of the Cannes jury. The two Oscar winners got up on chairs to dance and were joined by a saxophone player, who jumped on the table, and even Frémaux, who got in on the dance party. (The video, first captured by Variety, has now gone viral with Yeoh and Larson sharing on their social media and raving about meeting each other for the first time.)
Clayton Davis Senior Awards Editor Considered one of the greatest actors of his generation, Academy Award winner Leonardo DiCaprio continues his stronghold on Hollywood and modern-day cinema. With nearly three decades in cinema, he’s delivered some of the most memorable characters and performances, bringing in more than $6.5 billion in box office receipts, placing him in the top 10 highest-grossing leading actors of all time. Variety ranks DiCaprio’s 18 best film performances of his career so far.
Rebecca Rubin Film and Media Reporter Robert De Niro blasted Donald Trump as a “stupid” man during the Cannes Film Festival press conference for “Killers of the Flower Moon,” comparing the former president to the twisted power player he portrays in Martin Scorsese’s crime epic, which premiered on Saturday night. De Niro admits he struggled to connect with William Hale, saying “I don’t understand a lot about my character. Part of him is sincere. The other part, where he’s betraying [the Osage tribe], there’s a feeling of entitlement. We became a lot more aware [of that dichotomy] after George Floyd with systemic racism.” De Niro drew parallels between his character and Donald Trump, whose name the actor initially refused to say out loud at the press conference. “That guy is stupid,” he said of the former president. Lily Gladstone, who stars as Osage tribe member Mollie Burkhart, pointed out that Osage members still attended the funeral of William Hale, in denial about his involvement in the brutal murders of tribe members. De Niro, again, evoked Trump in response to that kind of blind loyalty to evil men. “There are people who still think he can do a good job. Imagine how insane that is.”
